It was one of those days, cool, rain, with the threat of a tropical downpour later. In the north of England more than a month’s rain expected within 24 hours, added to the wettest June on record, and similar to hit the south later in the afternoon or early evening.

Nevertheless, I decided I would go to Guildford for excellent lunch at the Guildford Institute.

On my journey there I met a couple of Russians on their way to London. They agreed to take a birthday present for me to a friend in Moscow which made me very happy.

Lunch at the Guildford Institute was excellent. There was little choice and that is one of the problems with its growing popularity, what was once Guildford’s best kept secret of the place to eat, word has got out.

There is always a meal deal, buy a main course and a desert, plus a free glass of fruit juice, tea or coffee is extra.

I chose carrot and leak bake with salad. It was excellent. As was my desert which I think is called lime crunch.

I popped down into the library and was shown a book they had been donated on stained glass. To my surprise I found a glass pictured that I had picked up in Finland.

I had hoped to find a copy of Aleph. No luck, but I did manage to pick up a copy of The Alchemist.

I would have liked to have gone to salsa that evening at Bar des Arts, but I feared the rain and it was Friday, and Friday night on the streets of Guildford with drunken scum is not a pleasant experience, and so I decided not.
